Boogedy Boogedy Boo

Although I enjoyed painting "Mother & Child," whenever I finish a work like that I feel a creative backlash. It becomes imperative that I paint or create some work that is more in line with my twisted aesthetic values.

Sooo...I present "The Three-Eyed Boogedy Boogedy Man of the Mountain."

I used acrylic paint, texture gel, and toothpicks to create this image on 11"x14" canvas. The techniques used include regular brushwork, squeezing the paint directly from the tube onto the canvas, scraping, and manipulating the paint with both paint knives and brush handles.

Until next time,

Boogedy Boogedy Boo to You!

Thinking Organically

No, this post is not about any environmental stuff; I'm posting a new painting: "Mother & Child" (2009). This was a gift for my mother (who just had a birthday). It's 9" x 12" and acrylic on canvas (this image has been slightly corrected in Photoshop because my photo was pretty crappy).

I had the flu before I painted this. To get it done on time, I spent about 30 hours over the course of three days (and still got to my parents' house late for dinner on Mom's birthday).

I hope you enjoy it as much as she has.

Until next time,

New Painting

Hello again,

This one is called "School Bully." I had painted the green character late last year, but couldn't decide what else to do with it until earlier this year. Unfortunately, I got a little too experimental, and had to repaint the majority of the fish (which explains why it wasn't finished earlier).

I'm also trying to get my feet wet with digital work, but I've got at least a few more paintings in the making. They'll get posted as soon as they are done. I'm currently fighting the flu (I think) so I'm not promising when new work will be up.

Until next time,
